Good BBQ

Had the brisket, sirloin kebabs, and some turkey. The brisket and turkey were tasty not the best I've ever had but definitely good. The sirloin kebabs dipped in butter were OK but not life-changing. Be prepared to stand in line in the heat by the smokers and grills and to smell like you just came... read more

The pulled pork sandwich and barbecue chicken were very delicious. The help-yourself pot of beans was an added plus. Will try the beef next time.

A cousin recommended this place and it was amazing, the meat had delicious smoked flavor and was done perfectly. We shared a mix of brisket, pork ribs and jalapeño sausages with a couple sides of creamed jalapeño corn, potato salad and a slice of pecan pie. Would highly recommend.

I have visited many, many BBQ joints in all regions of the US and this is my favorite. I stumbled on it while killing some time before flying out of DFW - it is 10 minutes north of the airport in an office park. I had very low expectations based on the location but was amazed by the place. You... More

I'm not much for barbeque but this is a great place. You go thru a line & tell them what you want. I love the jalepeno wrapped chicken or shrimp with bacon. After you've made you're selection they weigh it & you pay by the pound. After the pit you go down the line & get you're salads, drinks, deserts... More

Pretty Good BBQ. I personally don't enjoy standing in a long line to get my food. Feels like I'm waiting to get on a ride at a theme park. Not to mention you smell like smoke and bbq for the rest of the day. I think the bbq is expensive but I do enjoy the bands on Friday nights.

As someone from Ohio I felt like this was a true Texas BBQ Experience. Ordering right out of the pit was great. The brisket and chicken were excellent. Note: a half pound is a lot of meat so order a quarter pound oaf a few things and go from there. My wife and I shared a few things and it... More

Being a southerner, I get a lot of BBQ. But there's BBQ, and there's real, legit BBQ. Hard Eight most certainly serves the latter. The bacon-wrapped shrimp poppers and 1/2 chicken were excellent, the creamed corn was second to none, and the free baked beans were a unique recipe that any bean-lover would enjoy. I WILL be back next time... More
